    Fonz Custard came to the Cynthiana Country Club last week and asked about having a scramble to help finance his 13 and under basketball team.  As I learned more, I discovered that the name for the team is the Cynthiana Bulldogs.  
    There are 14 members of this team that Custard is voluntarily coaching, which includes students from the Harrison County Middle School and a couple from Southside Elementary.

    Bryan Station began the first inning scoring two runs on a walk, two singles and an RBI ground out. Harrison County pitcher, Jima Hill then settled down and held the Lady Defenders hitless for the remainder of the first inning as well as the second and third innings.

    The 26-8 Harrison County Thorobreds still have questions this late into the season.  Coach Mac Whitaker following the Tuesday night 6-5 win over Mason County (10-14) was unhappy with several aspects of his team’s play while praising other areas.  The Hall of Fame coach had a quick meeting with his team following the game to express his concerns.

    The Harrison County High School Archery Fillies shot in the KHSAA State Tournament on Tuesday, April 30 in Bowling Green. The Fillies shot a team total of 1978 which placed them seventh among the 22 teams in the competition. This is an improvement of seven places over last year’s 14th place finish with a score of 1947.

  • The National past time

    There has been a discussion going on for the past few years about what sport is the national past time.  
    Baseball had long been regarded without question as the national past time as it carried that mantra since the early 1900’s.
    Many believed that professional football was going to pass major league baseball and become the official national past time but the kneelers have probably prevented that from happening.  
    I still know many people who will not watch the NFL because of the protesters.

    The Harrison County High School track team was in Lexington on Tuesday, April 30, and again on Saturday, May 4, for big track meets.  
    Both the Fillies and the Thorobreds were much more successful on Tuesday, at Bryan Station, than they were on Saturday, at Frederick Douglass.
